A ladder 16m long leans against an electric pole. If the ladder makes an angle of 65^{o} with the ground, how far up the electric pole does its top reach

**Answer Details**

We can use trigonometry to solve this problem. Let x be the distance from the bottom of the ladder to the electric pole. Then, we can create a right triangle with the ladder as the hypotenuse, x as one leg, and the distance we are trying to find as the other leg. Using trigonometric functions, we know that: sin(65^{o}) = opposite/hypotenuse sin(65^{o}) = (distance up the pole)/16 (distance up the pole) = 16*sin(65^{o}) (distance up the pole) ≈ 14.5m Therefore, the answer is 14.5m.

A rectangular carpet 2.5m long and 2.4m wide covers 5% of a rectangular floor. Calculate the area of the floor

**Answer Details**

Let's assume that the rectangular floor has a length of L meters and a width of W meters. We know that the rectangular carpet covers 5% of the rectangular floor, which means that the area of the carpet is 5% of the area of the floor. We can write this as an equation: 2.5 × 2.4 = 0.05 × L × W Multiplying the left-hand side, we get: 6 = 0.05LW Dividing both sides by 0.05, we get: 120 = LW Therefore, the area of the rectangular floor is LW, which is 120 square meters. Hence, the area of the floor is 120 m², which is the third option.

In the diagram what is x + y in terms of z?

**Answer Details**

In a triangle, the sum of the angles is always 180 degrees. In the given diagram, we can see that the angles x, y, and z form a triangle. Therefore, we have: x + y + z = 180^{o} Rearranging this equation, we get: x + y = 180^{o} - z Hence, the value of x + y in terms of z is 180^{o} - z. Therefore, the answer is (a) 180^{o} - z.

What is the place value of 9 in the number 3.0492?

**Answer Details**

In the number 3.0492, 9 is in the thousandth place. The places in a decimal number are counted from left to right starting from the tenths place, which is immediately to the right of the decimal point. Each place value to the right of the tenths place is ten times smaller than the one to its left. So the first digit to the right of the decimal point is in the tenths place, the second digit is in the hundredths place, and the third digit is in the thousandths place, and so on. Therefore, the place value of 9 in the number 3.0492 is \(\frac{9}{1000}\).

The temperature in a chemical plant was -5^{o}C at 2.00 am. The temperature fell by 6^{o}C and then rose again by 7^{o}C. What was the final temperature?

**Answer Details**

The temperature in the chemical plant was -5^{o}C at 2.00 am. The temperature fell by 6^{o}C, so the temperature became (-5 - 6) = -11^{o}C. The temperature then rose by 7^{o}C, which means the temperature increased from -11^{o}C to (-11 + 7) = -4^{o}C. Therefore, the final temperature was -4^{o}C. Hence, the correct option is (-4^{o}C).

Simplify \(\frac{x - 4}{4} - \frac{x - 3}{6}\)

**Answer Details**

To simplify the given expression, we first need to find a common denominator for the two fractions. In this case, the least common multiple of 4 and 6 is 12. So, we can write: \[\frac{x - 4}{4} - \frac{x - 3}{6} = \frac{3(x - 4)}{12} - \frac{2(x - 3)}{12}\] Now, we can combine the two fractions by subtracting the numerators: \[\frac{3(x - 4)}{12} - \frac{2(x - 3)}{12} = \frac{3x - 12 - 2x + 6}{12}\] Simplifying the numerator, we get: \[\frac{3x - 2x - 12 + 6}{12} = \frac{x - 6}{12}\] Therefore, the simplified expression is \(\frac{x - 6}{12}\). So, the answer is option (B).

If x + y = 12 and 3x - y = 20, find the value of 2x - y

**Answer Details**

We are given two equations as follows: x + y = 12 .... (Equation 1) 3x - y = 20 .... (Equation 2) We need to find the value of 2x - y. To solve the problem, we can use the method of substitution or elimination. Here, we will use the method of substitution. From Equation 1, we can write: y = 12 - x Substituting this value of y in Equation 2, we get: 3x - (12 - x) = 20 Simplifying the equation, we get: 4x - 12 = 20 Adding 12 to both sides, we get: 4x = 32 Dividing both sides by 4, we get: x = 8 Now, substituting the value of x in Equation 1, we get: y = 12 - 8 y = 4 Therefore, we have found the values of x and y as 8 and 4, respectively. Finally, substituting these values in the expression 2x - y, we get: 2x - y = 2(8) - 4 = 12 Hence, the value of 2x - y is 12.

If 2x + y = 10, and y \(\neq\) 0, which of the following is not a possible value of x?

**Answer Details**

The equation 2x + y = 10 can be rearranged as 2x = 10 - y. Dividing both sides by 2 gives x = 5 - (y/2). Therefore, the value of x will depend on the value of y. Now, if we substitute each of the given values of x into the equation 2x + y = 10, we can determine which ones are not possible. For x = 4, we get 2(4) + y = 10, which simplifies to y = 2. This is a possible value of y, so x = 4 is a possible value of x. For x = 5, we get 2(5) + y = 10, which simplifies to y = 0. But the question states that y ≠ 0, so x = 5 is not a possible value of x. For x = 8, we get 2(8) + y = 10, which simplifies to y = -6. This is a possible value of y, so x = 8 is a possible value of x. For x = 10, we get 2(10) + y = 10, which simplifies to y = -10. This is also a possible value of y, so x = 10 is a possible value of x. Therefore, the answer is x = 5, which is not a possible value of x.

The wheel of a tractor has a diameter 1.4m. What distance does it cover in 100 complete revolutions? [Take \(\pi = \frac{22}{7}\)]

**Answer Details**

The circumference of the wheel is the distance it covers in one revolution. Circumference of the wheel = π × diameter Substituting the given values, Circumference of the wheel = π × 1.4m = 4.4m (rounded to one decimal place) Therefore, the distance covered in 100 revolutions is: Distance covered = Circumference of the wheel × Number of revolutions Substituting the given values, Distance covered = 4.4m × 100 = 440m Therefore, the wheel covers a distance of 440m in 100 complete revolutions. Hence, the correct option is (D) 440m.

A fair coin is tossed three times. Find the probability of getting two heads and one tail.

**Answer Details**

When a fair coin is tossed, there are two possible outcomes, heads (H) or tails (T), each with a probability of 1/2. Since the coin is tossed three times, the total number of possible outcomes is 2 × 2 × 2 = 8. We need to find the probability of getting two heads and one tail, which can happen in three different ways: HHT, HTH, or THH. Each of these outcomes has a probability of (1/2) × (1/2) × (1/2) = 1/8. Therefore, the probability of getting two heads and one tail is the sum of the probabilities of the three possible outcomes: P(HHT) + P(HTH) + P(THH) = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 = 3/8. Hence, the answer is 3/8.

In the diagram, the two circles have a common centre O. If the area of the larger circle is 100\(\pi\) and that of the smaller circle is 49\(\pi\), find x

**Answer Details**

Let the radius of the smaller circle be r, and the radius of the larger circle be R. The area of a circle is given by the formula A = \(\pi r^2\). Therefore, the radius of the smaller circle is \(\sqrt{\frac{49\pi}{\pi}} = 7\). Similarly, the radius of the larger circle is \(\sqrt{\frac{100\pi}{\pi}} = 10\). Since O is the centre of both circles, the distance between O and the point where the two circles intersect is R - r = 10 - 7 = 3. From the diagram, we can see that x is also equal to this distance, so x = 3. Therefore, the answer is 3.

**Answer Details**

If the seller allows a 20% discount for cash payment, then the customer will only have to pay 80% of the marked price. Let MP be the marked price and CP be the cash payment. CP = 80% of MP CP/MP = 80/100 CP/MP = 4/5 Therefore, the ratio of the cash payment to the marked price is 4:5. So the correct answer is option (D) 4:5.

Given that y = 1 - \(\frac{2x}{4x - 3}\), find the value of x for which y is undefined

**Answer Details**

To find the value of x for which y is undefined, we need to look for values of x that make the denominator of the expression for y equal to zero, since division by zero is undefined. The denominator of the expression for y is 4x - 3. Therefore, we need to find the value of x that makes 4x - 3 equal to zero. Solving the equation 4x - 3 = 0, we get: 4x = 3 x = 3/4 Therefore, the value of x for which y is undefined is x = 3/4. Explanation: To understand why we need to look for values of x that make the denominator of the expression for y equal to zero, we need to remember that division by zero is undefined. When we divide a number by zero, there is no answer because it is impossible to divide any number into equal parts of zero size. In the given expression for y, the denominator is 4x - 3. If we plug in x = 3/4, the denominator becomes: 4x - 3 = 4(3/4) - 3 = 3 - 3 = 0 This means that when x = 3/4, the denominator becomes zero, and therefore division by zero occurs, which makes the value of y undefined. Hence, the value of x for which y is undefined is x = 3/4.

a conical water-jug is 7cm in diameter and 6cm deep. find the volume of water it can hold. [Take \(\pi = \frac{22}{7}\)]

**Answer Details**

The volume of a cone can be calculated using the formula: V = (1/3)πr^{2}h where V is the volume of the cone, r is the radius of the circular base, h is the height of the cone, and π is a mathematical constant approximately equal to 22/7. Given that the diameter of the circular base is 7cm, the radius r can be calculated as half of the diameter: r = 7/2 = 3.5cm. The height of the cone is given as 6cm. Substituting these values into the formula for the volume of a cone, we get: V = (1/3) x (22/7) x (3.5cm)^{2} x 6cm Simplifying this expression, we get: V = (1/3) x (22/7) x 12.25cm^{2} x 6cm V = (22/21) x 74.25cm^{3} V = 77cm^{3} Therefore, the volume of water the conical water-jug can hold is 77cm^{3}. Answer option (C) is correct.

The ratio of boys to girls in a class is 5:3. Find the probability of selecting at random, a girl from the class

**Answer Details**

The ratio of boys to girls in the class is 5:3. This means that for every 5 boys, there are 3 girls in the class. Let B be the number of boys in the class and G be the number of girls in the class. Then, we can write: B:G = 5:3 We can simplify this ratio by dividing both sides by the greatest common factor of 5 and 3, which is 1. B:G = 5/1 : 3/1 B:G = 5 : 3 This means that there are 5 parts for boys and 3 parts for girls in the class. The total number of parts is 5+3 = 8. To find the probability of selecting a girl at random, we need to find the number of parts that represent the girls and divide it by the total number of parts. The number of parts that represent the girls is 3, since there are 3 parts for girls out of a total of 8 parts. Therefore, the probability of selecting a girl at random is: P(selecting a girl) = number of parts that represent the girls / total number of parts P(selecting a girl) = 3/8 Therefore, the probability of selecting a girl at random from the class is 3/8.

If log_{a}270 - log_{a}10 + log_{a} \(\frac{1}{3}\) = 2, what is the value of a?

**Answer Details**

Using the logarithmic property that log_{a}(b) - log_{a}(c) = log_{a}(b/c), we can simplify the given expression as: log_{a}(270/10) + log_{a}(1/3) = 2 Simplifying further, we get: log_{a}(27) + log_{a}(1/3) = 2 Using the logarithmic property that log_{a}(b) + log_{a}(c) = log_{a}(bc), we can write: log_{a}(27 x 1/3) = 2 log_{a}(9) = 2 Now, using the definition of logarithm, we can write: a^2 = 9 Taking the square root on both sides, we get: a = 3 or -3 However, a cannot be negative, as the base of a logarithm must be positive. Therefore, the value of a is 3. Hence, the value of a is 3.
